    Hey Gang,

    HereÂ’s one I just finished for a private commission. My client wasnÂ’t
    sure on how to display the bust, so I suggested the milk crate on the bike
    with the blanket to hide the fact it was just a bust.

    IÂ’m really happy with how he turned out, and you can see how much
    my 2 year old daughter Jaclyn loves him. LOL..

    This bust was sculpted by the master of 1/1 LikenessesÂ…
    Howard Senft of Howard S.Studios

    For more info on how to get one of these outstanding busts contact
    Howard at - info@howardsstudios.com

    Thanks.

    How did you go about doing the eyes? I don't suppose they make glass eyes large enough for this...

    Funny -- I was thinking about sculpted/painted eyes just this morning on my way to work (I hand painted the eyes on my Yoda).

    If my memory serves, the iris is flat, and the cornea (of course) is curved. But on a sculpted surface, you can only acheive the cureved aspect of the cornea, which brings the iris out and essentially fuses it with the cornea, which is contrary to nature. Makes it tough to replicate.

    By the way, I LOVE the pics with your daughter -- she's a cutie. Myown daughter is three. The last two close-ups really show off the superb work on the skin tones...

    That is just sooooo beautiful.

    I want to buy all Howards busts and send them to you to paint. LOL.


    You are so talented.

    May I ask what you used inside the milk crate to prop him up? How did you keep him from leaning forward? Isnt he top heavy?

    Again, way to go on this paintjob. The eyes are so realistic.

    U ARE DA MAN~

    George

    PS...You're daughter is so cute. I have (3) little ones -girl and two boys - 4, 2, 1. Quite a handful. They like my monsters though. :)

    Hey Thanks PH.

    For the eyes:
    Before I primed him I sanded the eyes as smooth as I could get them. Because any bumps
    or imperfections would show up later when they are glossed.

    Painting:
    First I base coated the whole eye ball with an off white.
    When that was dry I took a compass and lightly arced a circle for each iris and pupil. Then I just
    painted in layers of blue for the iris, and black for the pupils. Then when I got them the way I
    wanted, I glossed them.

    Hey GeorgeL,

    I made a little stand for him, by taking a 5" round plaque drilling a whole in the middle
    and * it to the end of a 1.5' long 2"x2". Then I drilled four holes in the round
    plaque and used wire to fasten it to the bottom of the crate. Once it was fastened I slide
    the bust down the 2" x 2" into postion. As easy as that. LOL... :)

    Thanks for the kind words.

    Very cool. I've been wanting to do that to mine for over a year. I even located a nearly accurate milk crate but I haven't had time to finish him with all the other projects I've been working on ;)

    What paints did you use? Care to share some more of your technique?
    thanks.

    Its nice to see an E.T. thread, I can't remember seeing one for quite a while. Always was one of my favorite movies growing up.

    Hey,
    Just wanted to let everyone know that I am the proud owner of E.T. and that it has been such a pleasure working with Jeff. He got this piece done very quickly and got pictures out to me right away. I was so glad he was able to squeeze us in and do such a fabulous job on E.T. Of course, all the busts that Howard sculpts are second to none. Thanks again Jeff and Howard........ Lori & Doug
